Gppd for her and Brett Kavanaugh for doing more decent than most folks on this board.
Good post.

RBG was friends with Scalia, too.

Not accurate when it comes to today’s batch of extremists in charge of the Democrat party. They’ve called Trump a traitor, a racist, a misogynist, etc. All with no basis.

I was disappointed in her decision to discuss Trump, I think our justices should always be above political partisanship.
Does our president meet that standard?

RBG is one of the last remaining honorable liberals. Unfortunately, she's a dying breed. Today's left-wing extremists could learn a lot from her, but they won't.
Interesting.

Absolutely not, but that doesn’t mean it excuses RGB or anyone else if they lower themselves in response to him. Throwing away your principles because someone else has none means you never really had them in the first place. RBG was not the first, nor will she be the last, to have their sainthood status tarnished by their reaction to Trump.

RBG is pure class and very much a professional. If, in her evaluation, they are both decent and smart, they likely are.
